2011 Subaru Outback

Nasty vibration from torque converter going in and out of lock-up. Dealer had car several times unable to replicate. I took off from work to take service manager and tech for instrumented ride, had no problem recreating problem. Replaced valve body.
Valve body suffered major failure a month or so after replaced (lit up dash big-time), limp-home mode. The second valve body started acting up within a day or two, needed to be replaced when I traded it.
Transmision shifting problems from first day,new trans after 3 weeks of hassle,and one tow in and two times delivery by me.
Transmission oil pan had a tiny leak. It didn't warrant repair as it wasnt dripping but I had the seal replaced to avoid future issues.
Transmission valve body replaced. $900 part, 8q T fluid, 5 hr labor.
Numerous dash lights, car was shifting harshly when engaging reverse or drive. Diagnosed as a faulty valve body which was replaced. Problem continued, transmission controller replaced, problem solved.
Reprogram transmission computer because car would shudder and nearly stall when climbing very steep hills at low speed (parking garage ramps)
shifts hard out of park when on any incline. Dealer stated this was "normal." Nothing was done...
Engine would stall when coming from high speed to a stop. They replaced the entire transmission.
Have a metal clanking sound that appears to be coming from the transmission when slowing to a stop...dealer hasn't been able to fix it as they have not been able to replicate the sound.
On going problem of metal rattling under transmission when slowing to a stop. Level of noise ranges from loud to soft and is intermittent. Dealer heard it once but then could not replicate the problem.
